2. Bi-metallics for Russian Cities ... by Cliff Anderson, USA

While researching the new seven Russian 10 rouble coins for the various ministries, I noticed that the WEBSITE indicates that there will be a total of 50 coins issued for those historic Russian cities, three per year. This seems to match the US commemorative quarters for the 50 US states. It did not say, but it seems a valid presumption that all of them will be Bi-metallic, just list this year's issues for Kostroma, Derbent, and Staraya.
